the evacuations related to the system. we begin however with derek valcourt with baltimore county where first responders have been making rescues all day. derek? >> reporter: all over this side, the eastern side of baltimore county, we are here in the rosedale area just off route 40 a while ago. the water would have been up against mid-chest level which is why route 40 in this section was shut down literally. the water is wandering over the median creating a few problems. the water rushed into the parking lot of this tire shop over here. dozens of the tires literally rolled out into the streets. the problems here, just the tip of the iceberg. from dundalk to anne arundel county, the rains fell too fast for many creeks, streams and storm drains to keep up with. >> i didn't believe it at first until i got down here. >> reporter: route 40 shut down for hours. the scene of a rescue after a driver tried to pass through the floodwaters which quickly rose over the jersey walls. >> i can't believe people are so stupid. you guys are telling everybody be careful around standing water, you know, everyth

this evening is not over, not by a long shot. back to you. >> you're right, derek. the other thing that was interesting that david leavy's mentioned in this post-9/11 world is that this is a building that has done drills to get out of the building. they floor captains. they let the floor know what happened. you need to know this is where we're going and this is where we're evacuating. and it is something that many office buildings and many of us are doing this now that we're in the new reality. >> there is a different vantage point of "discovery" there in the middle of silver springs. people, employees, who evacuated there quickly about 1:00, 130, after all of this started, still some waiting to get back in. we understand that the police have units and making sure there are no other dangerous explosives. this suspect was believed to have brought in boxes and backpacks with him and they're checking those out and probably canvassing the entire building to make sure that it is safe before people go back inside to collect some of their valuable that they need. >> and there is no timeta
leukemia. anita. >> that's right, derek. scientists are in shock. as the national institutes of health put 62 pending stem cell projects on hold and more than 200 other studies happening now could be in future jeopardy. the reason a federal court in dc ruled a 1996 budget law, congress' intent was crystal clear. federal money cannot be spent on research. now, as you mentioned, derek, this could wipe out the childhood research leukemia. this is a court decision. some are applauding it, saying it could delay cures and cost lives. so obviously a lot of strong feelings on both sides. this doesn't apply to privately funded research or studies that use stem cells that don't come from human embryos. >>> thank you, anita. >>> after the break. topper is back with your forecast for this thursday commute. so stay with us.
